The annual Popham Classic Vehicle Rally is quite unique in that it also includes a fly in of vintage aircraft into the airfield. The turnout of both cars and vendors for the swap meet was the largest in recent years. Really good assortment of cars from all categories with American cars being particularly well represented. Gave the S10 a run out for the event, the weather was fine if a little chilly!

Classic Car Show Popham Airfield UK May 2nd 2016
We took our annual jaunt to the classic car show at Popham Airfield which is a 40 minute drive from where we live. The weather outlook wasn’t great and impacted the turnout a little, but in the end the weather was pretty good, and the American attendance was of a good quality and a reasonable quantity. My favourite was a lovely blue 1947 Hudson Pickup
Happy New Year at the Phoenix Green Classic Car Breakfast!
